I've been to a decent amount of DSO shows throughout their existence. Jeff Mattson, the new guitarist, is a better fit imo than JK was. JK had some excellent moments through his tenure with the band, but Mattson brings a spark to the band, that i felt was sometimes lacking with the older lineup. I find the shows to have more kick and excitement and they used to.

I agree that it's a complete waste of time to listen to DSO once the show is over, unless you just want to relive the memories you had. However, they are worth seeing live. More so than Furthur imo. Jeff Mattson does some very nice acoustic numbers sometimes as well.
